Disney Channel’s New Show Sounds Kind of Awesome


It’s not a D! Stop trying to make it a D!

It’s not often I’d report on the Disney Channel creating a new show, and subsequently training our future bad-girl-in-chief in the tradition of Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes and Miley Cyrus. But this idea sounds kind of amazing.

“Descendants is set in a present-day idyllic kingdom, where the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s Beauty And The Beast) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters. These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma: Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?”

Yeah sure, this will probably be all kid-ified and lame in practice, but damn, that’s a really cool idea at the very least. I think this would almost make for a better blockbuster movie than a presumably low-budget TV series, but their villains and princesses, they can do what they want I guess.

I’m shuddering to imagine who might have slept wiht Curella De Vil to produce an offspring. Or Jafar for that matter. God I hope it wasn’t Jasmine.

I want to see how this turns out, I’ll say that.
